I ensure that I would not miss the historical moment, the return of Anwar Ibrahim to Parliament. I was caught in a terrible traffic jam yesterday due to the rehearsal of merdeka’s day parade. I have checked and found out that similar rehearsal would be held today.
As I was near the “bridge” leading to the Parliament building, I saw two police patrol cars stationed at the road side with some police officers. An additional security check by the police was also placed half way the said bridge though the existing guard house with few security officers were in operation like the usual days.
Also the waste of manpower? What is the concern of the police or “the people at the top”? Anwar is now the elected representative, Member of Parliament of Malaysia.
Last Sunday, when I was at Permatang Pauh, to be specific, two ceramahs, one at Sg Lembu and another at Seberang Jaya, I called on the voters to send Anwar back to Parliament, for all Malaysians. Also, I emphasized the sacrifices and contributions by Wan Azizah. There was a need to increase the majority votes of Anwar to send out a strong message to BN government that we want a change. The BN leadership has not changed since March 8 except, Abdullah announcing his successor , Najib. I said at the ceramah, “When you think of Najib to be the next Prime Minister, you will immediately think of Mongolian, then, you will be shivering.”
When I walked into Parliament yesterday, after the result on last Tuesday, a journalist asked me to comment about the winning of Anwar in a sentence. I told her, ” Now, there is hope for Malaysians.” She gave me a surprised look.
Indeed, I could feel the high spirit in Parliament and myself, personally, is hopeful that there will be better days ahead.
Thank you, Datin Wan Azizah for your sacrifices, contributions and struggle for us.
